Limb Spicules & Prom, our Fuzzy Star! | HA | Aug 13th 2020

Post by MalVeauX » Fri Aug 14, 2020 12:12 pm

Hey all,

I had a short window due to storms, so I only managed one image. I took a look at the limb to see the dancing spicules and an arching prominence under fair seeing conditions.

Given decent seeing there are no substitute for aperture. Well done Marty.

These are beautiful shots of the limb, Marty.
I also hope you and Valery can resolve your issues.
Cheers.

Hey guys. I removed the arguing posts. There’s no place for that here.
Cloudy Nights has much better arguing so take it over there. :)

No, I dont want any private messages explaining who’s fault it is, just be nice. We’re all professionals and academics here.

Hello Marty,
Your presentations and with you excellent imagery is certainly something to savour. Such fine detail including the negative-images...

If I could even get half-way to your standards, I would be very pleased and at least over the last three-months since joining SolarChat, I can see what I would like to achieve (and post here-of course) and am working a little closer to that end.

Best Wishes and thanks vm.

Terry
